“We are urging Pennsylvanians to stay calm, but be prepared,” Governor Wolf said. “State agencies are preparing for the worst, tracking conditions in real time and collaborating on our response. Residents should prioritize their safety and heed all warnings from law enforcement and emergency officials.”
“Your safety and the safety of all Pennsylvanians is my top priority, and the priority of everyone here. Just be safe.”
